Bali demands lower airport landing charges
Oct 19, 2006

BALI Tourism bodies in Bali will start lobbying the Indonesian Government to lower landing charges at the islands Denpasar Ngurah Rai Airport.From Australias West Coast, flights are full. We are struggling all the time and if we want to get back to pre-2005 levels, we need more capacity, said Robert Kelsall, Bali Hotels Association chairman.The charges are viewed as costly especially when Bali is in need of business, reported Lowering charges and giving incentives to airlines are crucial in the bid to attract airlines to destinations.Foreign arrival figures for September 2006 are down 27 percent month-on-month compared to the same month last year, showing that Bali has not regained the momentum lost following its recent terror incident in October in 2005.Balis tourism authorities expect foreign arrivals for this year to be 15 percent lower than 2005.
